Rated 5 out of 5 by AngelO Excellent Teacher!
Sarah has been a great teacher since the beginning. She is super friendly and patient when it comes to teaching and always makes each lesson fun and exciting whether it's learning proper instrument positioning or learning more advanced techniques. I would definitely recommend Sarah to anyone looking to learn to play violin or trying to improved their violin skills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kyle An outstanding teacher for both adults and children
The Short Version: I totally and wholeheartedly recommend Sara for anybody at any age considering studying Violin.
The Long Version: As a beginner adult student and a child care provider, I feel I have a very unique perspective into Sara's teaching style.
Studying under Sara has been absolutely wonderful and has really fueled my progress with the violin. Within five minutes of the first lesson you can tell how excited she is to be teaching you something she is so clearly passionate about. She's positive and patient in her instruction and in learning from her, you get the feeling she wants you to be your best so that one day you could even play alongside her. That, along with her professionalism, sincerity and respect makes her truly valuable as a teacher.
However, as good as she is with adults, I think she's even better with children. I provide private child care for a living (which is just a fancy way of saying I'm a nanny). I work with children ranging from 20 months to 14 years old and I'm very good at my job. In my experience, I've found that you can tell that some people, for some reason, are just good with kids. It requires a certain balance of patience, enthusiasm and authority and it all has to seem easy. Sara possesses these qualities in abundance. The violin can seem like a complicated instrument to a beginner and it can be frustrating (believe me, I know), but Sara has a knack for breaking things down in a way your child will understand and, more importantly, have fun doing it.
So why are you still reading this? Go and sign up already! :)

First when I decided to start learning violin, I was a bit hesitant because how difficult I heard learning this instrument is and my age, which is 28, that its a late start. All these negative thoughts were gone since my first lesson with Sarah.
She is so skillful and positive. She changed my idea about learning and made it easy for me. Classes are fun and enjoyable. She insists in repeating and doesn't move on to the next step until she is confident that I did the first right.
Can't wait until I get more of these lessons. And hopefully better in playing the violin.
